A total of 8,000 m2 of aluminium cladding, ground and anodised by BWB to a natural colour finish, was installed on the Solothurn Hospital.
As a result of the complex geometry, the aluminium sheets were ground immediately after being cut to size and then later bent to shape and anodised to give a natural colour finish.
